Create Your Own Law Scholarship
Increase representation in the field of law. Sponsor an American Muslim student committed to advancing justice and equality.
It is the responsibility of legal professionals to support the academic success of the next generation of American Muslim public interest attorneys.
With ISF's Create Your Own Scholarship program, you can easily fulfill that responsibility by establishing a scholarship named after your firm, Muslim Bar Association, or attorney group, without any of the heavy legal and administrative paperwork.
ISF is proud to have awarded over 64 scholarships to law students alone. These students have attended Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Yale, and other prestigious law schools across the United States. Many have graduated and now work as law clerks, legislative policy aides on Capitol Hill, and practitioners in public interest law firms. Many have published their own books, while others plan to become judges at the city, state, or federal level.
These scholars graduated and went on to achieve successful and meaningful careers because of sponsors who believed in their potential. Will you join them in preparing Muslim law students to follow in their footsteps?
